more from Conference 2009...

There was quite a lot of interest in the work of BSD new-comer Hugo Jenks, who has pioneered a way of recording dowsing data electronically, in conjunction with GPS:

The following comes from the blog of Tom Graves:

Tom Graves' blog wrote:One which bridged the gap between dowsing and technical world was a lovely Google Earth ‘mashup’ by Hugo Jenks, linking traditional dowsing techniques to current GIS (geographical information systems) with a purpose-built embedded-controller and an ingenious software hack. One of the standard dowsing techniques uses a single horizontal rod with a vertical handle as a mechanical amplifier to highlight small hand-movements. Hugo had made up a version of this with twin sensors to record the deviation either side of straight-ahead (the dowsing ’signal’); he then fed this in real-time into a laptop which also had a GPS card to record position.
